A modern office features an open concept with several desks facing the window and a bike leaning on the reception desk.

Social media is famously notorious as a platform for sharing opinions and ideas. However, just because you read something on Facebook and Instagram doesn’t mean it’s always true (or helpful and valuable)! Although used office furniture may appear to be a fairly unassuming topic, as with any subject matter, fact can become mingled with fiction. 

Many managers turn to Commerce Office Furniture for both new and used office furniture. We have one of the widest collections of preowned, quality furniture inventory in New Jersey and the Greater Philadelphia area. 

Don’t Always Believe What You’ve Heard About Used Office Furniture in Philadelphia

Before you shop for used office furniture, do a little homework. Taking time to research, “used office furniture near me,” to find a local office furniture wholesaler can save you time and money. Not all used office furniture options are created equal, nor are tips provided on social media!

Take a look at five taboos often touted (incorrectly) when it comes to used office furniture:

  • A modern workspace features several workstations with orange desktops and matching office chairs.Fearsome Warning of Wear-and-Tear

Sometimes, office-buying guides will warn against purchasing used office furniture with the caution of wear and tear. At COF, we carry gently-used furniture, often indistinguishable from new options. 

  • Limited Selection of Quality Furniture

While this may be true of smaller used furniture retailers, COF has a 25,000 square foot warehouse and showroom stocked with brand-name office furniture such as Herman Miller, Steelcase, Haworth, and Kimball.

  • Fewer Types of Furniture Options

With the many brand names that we carry in used office furniture, we offer a large variety of options. Whether facilities managers are looking for cubicles, desks, chairs, conference tables, or other types of used office furniture in PA, COF has what they’re looking for—and more!

  • Lacking Resources for Furniture Delivery & Design

We have helped many office managers who have purchased used office furniture in NJ, Philadelphia, and the surrounding areas by offering additional services such as professional delivery, installation, project management, and even FREE space planning!

  • Lower Priced Furniture Means Compromised Quality

At COF, we take pride in our ability to offer high-quality used office furniture at lower prices. Many of our used cubicles, desks, chairs, conference tables, and reception stations can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of new furniture.
